The FY 2018 Grant Application is closed.
Komen Hawaii awards community grants to organizations that provide breast cancer projects that address specific funding priorities which were selected based on data from the 2015 Komen Hawaii Community Profile.

The grant funding was for breast cancer projects for the performance period of:

April 1, 2018 – March 31, 2019. Awardees were notified in March 2018.


Although Komen Hawaii is not accepting applications for Community Grants this year, we are accepting applications for Small Grants, and we are investing funds into the Treatment Assistance Fund that supports patients who qualify from the state of Hawaii.
